How would you explain it? I got up early and went to the track to do 3x1600 repeats. Not too difficult, huh? Last time I managed to rack 'em at 7:58, 7:49 and 7:49. Today, feeling okay, I started fine but then died: 7:50, 7:57 & 8:12. Do you think it had anything to do with running 17 miles two days ago? Or am I just not the runner I was a year ago?
If I make it out of Florida Thursday morning after Ernesto plows through Orlando with his 50-60 mph winds I plan to run 10 miles on Friday and then the New Haven 20K on Monday. Do you think I should throttle back a few miles to give me a chance to score nicely on the race? Or should I stick to plan and work to win the Marine Corps Marathon (in my personal age group/born on my birthday)?
It's been a moviefest at our house lately. We watched the Big Labowski or something similarly stupid-named movie on a Netflix DVD on Friday night. Sunday we went to see World Trade Center and followed that by slipping into another theatre and laughing through The Devil Wears Prada. Last night we went to the artsy theatre, ate a dinner and saw Little Miss Sunshine which was hilarious. My favorite? The Devil Wears Prada.
Oh. The forecast says rain and high wind in Rhode Island on Saturday. Ernesto must be following me.
